  2. I'm just exhausted from these never-ending couple comparisons.

  3. I can actually live with the one off cheating bullshit more than the long running stupidity of the “he wore her down” line which yet again rears its ugly head in the next episode. As unrealistic and out of nowhere as it was, and as cruel it was to even have it as a Lenny plot, they at least dropped in a couple of hints in 6.24 and 7.01 that were seen as stupid one liners at the time but were made prophetic by the jerk writers two seasons later. “Leonard: Yeah. And I’m a little worried because things between us have been so great, and I’d hate to do anything that screws that up. Penny: Oh, s

  5. Add to that that about 3 years ago she said she did want kids. This is what happens when the writers never plan and do not follow their own material, they just wing it. Works for jokes I guess, hurts other aspects. Yes. I never said everyone feels or should feel as I do. You quoted me and took what I said to a negative direction, so I explained my view, to explain that I wrote that as a positive.

  7. Neither Leonard or Penny really confront each other. The pity sex and the not wanting children is two examples of bringing a parent into a situation. Was it necessary to bring Beverley in the pity sex or apparently involving Wyatt into not having children discussion. In both it was there for a laugh. Some people think it would be wrong for Leonard bringing her dad in the situation but wasn’t it equally wrong for Penny to involve his mom?

  8. That is your way of seeing it. I see it as Leonard loving Penny so much that he would be willing to make a huge sacrifice to be with her. He'd rather be with her and not have kids than be with someone else and have kids with that woman.

  9. I felt it was desperation writing, they didn’t know what to write so they went with this to have something, it was a jump the shark moment, which does, to some extent, support your statement that it was the start of the decline in writing. Sometimes I feel that when the writers get stuck they throw in a Lenny conflict situation to try and save themselves from admitting they have no ideas. I find it hard to understand, with all the married couples shows that have been on TV, how the production staff could not bring a couple people in, who have experience writing married couple comedy, to write

  10. Yes, Penny is pretty spiritual. She believes in psychics, ghosts, astrology, voodoo. But not in crystals. Crystals don't work.

  11. I think the lower ratings last two weeks are a direct result of Shamy overkill. The wedding was last year time to move on. The first two storylines were so bleeping boring. If I here the word coitus one more time. It’s like hearing about people in a nursing home having sex. I’m glad I taped it so I could fast forward thru the nauseating parts. As to Stuart and Denise storyline being more interesting than anything else on the show that’s true. But that reflects more on the bad writing than anything else.

  12. I find it interesting though someone like Stuart mentioned that Lenny was the best couple he knew because they complimented each other. It seems to he had no bias like most on this forum do including myself. All I know is couples argue that’s part of life. You might see their happier times between them if the writers gave them more screen time

  22. Agree the writing for Lenny started to decline with this season 8 finale. Although, I have to say this was not the worst season finale. Season 4 finale with Raj and Penny had to be the worst in the series. I don't think anyone liked it, viewers, critics and cast stated their displeasure. There even were near fights with the writers about this storyline. But I think these writers are so comfortable in their positions (well not any more) that they cannot come up with good storylines for Lenny......only for Sheldon/Shamy. Could not agree more. And they had to squeeze the Shamy plot in

  23. Actually, I think they had a great time fooling Sheldon & Amy with the wedding gift. On screen they enjoyed seeing them perplexed by the gift. I imagine that off screen when they were deciding on giving them the gift, they had a great time as well. Often, when they are united with anti-Sheldon sentiments, they (lately anyway) are quite in-tune.....

  24. Will, I agree with this part. My great-grandparents had 6 children but they did not have a happy marriage (my great-grandfather was abusive and cheated a lot) and eventually divorced. In older married couples especially (after 40) who have been married for 20+ years sex is not the most important thing to them. Marriage after that point is more about companionship, strong bond, mutual respect and health, mature love that is if it a good marriage

  25. Sex is not the only thing that keeps a relationship interesting...you need more then sex to keep a relationship going. Having sex every night does not necessarily make a better relationship then those who have sex less often. Sheldon and Amy have a bond that goes beyond sex. They have a ton of mutual interests. A strong love of science, making up wacky games, such as going on scavenger hunts. Open communication. All very important to a successful relationship. They make effort to compromise with eachother. I would hate being in a relationship where you have nothing in common except sex.

  26. Just saw the sneak peeks. They seem to be really trying to stress the point that Lenny "have nothing in common" (have many differences) and bring up the question of whether they should be with each other or are wasting their time. What I hope will be the suggest conclusion though, in this and/or future episodes, is that it's not all about having many simalirities and the same goals. Of course that is very important in many cases, but I think they can show with Lenny that there can be people who make it work (although I hope the conclusion won't be no kids and think they could have done this wi

  27. This Raj test thing sounds similar to who’s a better couple episode between Lenny and Shamy. My guess is Penny takes the test stating she doesn’t want kids with no regard to Leonard. It is like the episode when Penny quits TCF to concentrate on acting. In that case he pretends to agree with Penny quitting and is relieved that Penny went back later assuming she was getting her job back. Seems like something similar to this episode.

  28. Prior to Episode 8.24, I scoffed at TPTB saying they don't really plan ahead when writing/creating episodes. I didn't buy it. That changed here. What they wanted to do (I think) was to have four plates spinning in the air at the same time. They created the Shamy breakup; Raj and Emily teetering on the edge of ending their relationship; and Howard and Bernadette asking Stuart to leave their house and live on his own. That left Leonard and Penny. "What can we do with Leonard and Penny that would be a great season ender?" I think was the question around the writer's table....."I know! I kn

  29. The show shifted from watching weird single nerds to more relationship centric storylines (Lenny, Howardette). I think, adding Amy was a good move, that could have allowed "social-retarded" Sheldon to keep up with the other characters as their stories moved forward. At this time, the original Amy characterization as a female version of Sheldon was perfect. Two people like that, engaging in a completely non-sexual relationship as a means of meeting social customs would have been perfect. Instead, they refitted Amy, who immediately began pressuring Sheldon to change. Now I feel that Sheld

  30. It reminds me of watching two people’s sex life at a retirement home, come on them just having sex once a year, on Amy’s birthday, sounds exactly like two 70-year olds. Even the writers agree, you don’t see them writing scenes of Sheldon and Amy in a sex dungeon do you. I actually think they reduced the romance between Lenny to prevent the glaring obvious situation with Shamy that their marriage is boring, which makes Sheldon less interesting and does not support the theme of the Sheldon Show.

  32. I disagree. If both are happy with solution how is it a band aid solution? Sheldon has been very clear he is not an overly physical person. But they do have sex when it suits them both. Amy is good with Sheldon. She is very happy with him and thier compramise.

  33. It's terrific if you see it like that. Your feelings are very valid to you and I respect that. But not everyone has to feel the way you do. And the people who don't are probably doing better this last year. I wish it had not come to this, though. I wanted them to end it before. I had a feeling it was going to turn into a mess. YES! This is exactly how I see it, too. And they discuss it, we see them discuss it and they come to a compromise that makes them both happy. This reminds me of the old joke about there being three types of sex. The first is house se

  36. The scene literally ends with him dragging Amy to their honeymoon suite on a whim. Not sure what more spontaneous he needs to be??? Also, yes, plenty of relationship/sex health advisors actually think scheduling sex is not a bad thing for a relationship. I kid you not.

  37. And another point as shown in episode 2 was that Sheldon still had to live by his scheduled lifestyle. Who the heck schedules sex on a to do list? Even though married Sheldon cannot discard his OCD tendencies. Which IMO, he still needs tending to as his Meemaw stated. Poor Amy!

  38. I hope she chooses to have kids on her own accord. Penny should not be forced/pressured in to having kids. It is ok if she decides she doesn't want them. People still lead happy, productive lives without them. It isn't end game for Lenny should they not have kids.

  40. And who can blame you? On this forum there've been complains about the lack of good Lenny stories for years and years now - and those are often coming from ppl who like the couple and can at least muster some interest from a few special moments every now and then. Anybody who doesn't even have that level of interest is more or less bored to tears at this point.

  42. We have yet to watch the episode, but I don't remember any hint in the TR that it was Leonard who involved Penny's father in the discussion about children; on the contrary he backed his wife up and defended her decision of not having children; the fact it is totally unbelievable to me he let it go so easily on something which was so important to him is a whole other story... I think it was one of those situations when parents push their children into giving them grandchildren ASAP, and Wyatt (without knowing it) chose the worst possible moment to make that request, as Penny and Leonard were a
